Limerick: shrinks, part 2

Once attending professional course
Shrinks attempted to fix mind flaws
They gorged on cocaine
But primitive brain
Has failed to achieve sacred pause

No Space For Manoeuvre

I gave him a fake Medicare card,
And he could have honoured my efforts,
But he just scowled and said "You 're out!"
And so I swore to myself to give him bad reports.

Austin Commute

It wasn't so bad this morning
But I arrived an hour early
If I'd left later—
     even a few minutes?
Only the clock will tell
After all
     It's only my first time

Held together with duck tape funny

Short Jobs poem by Julia Ward| Details | |


About selling leather in a market -

Valise, or case-selling ...
Each to his own
Noise in distribution,
Dashing to a mike
Or cupping his hands -
Rush of people to his leather stall.

Short Jobs poem by Timothy Hicks| Details | |

Careful What You Wish For

There once was an ambitious man named Eddie,
who wanted a job in the traveling industry.
The genie granted his wish,
but Ed never expected this;
an employer's note saying, "Welcome to the DMV!"

I Didn't Get The Job

Dear Sir or Madam,

that we
are not able
to offer you the
position, but we do
thank you for allowing us

check; it was absolutely hilarious.

The New Job

The New Job
Dr. James E. Martin
©December, 2012

He started his job at six,
He was ready to enter the mix.
He lost it as seven,
Not his view of heaven,
So now it is back to the sticks.

Waterfalls and beach balls 
breakfast in bed with bear claws 
Nothin I like better than a vacation

Ain't nothin I hate more than waitin in line 
For that next vacation

Short Jobs poem by Preston Dusseault| Details | |


My hands do indeed,
They show no secrets,
Scars and cuts,
Tough skin.

They show no secrets,
These hands of mine,
Tough skin,
Along the palm.

These hands of mine,
Scars and cuts,
Along the palm,
My hands do indeed.

Short Jobs poem by Lei Strauss| Details | |


Rolling my eyes
Everywhere I go
Searching for my luck
Hope that there’s a place
For someone like me.

Those newspapers
Scattered on floor
Makes me crazy
Desperate one...

I won’t stop
Won’t give up
I’ll try hard...

I know
I’ll find...

Short Jobs poem by Tara Andre| Details | |

Solving Insomnia

Dogs barking loudly at night,
Even when you tell them to stop?
After midnight or early hours,
Despite you having called the cops?

Don't you worry, I've been there too,
Open-eyed and out of my mind.
Good thing I acted; now I can sleep;
So maybe the next pooch will be more kind.
